COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uerige DoppelSticke might just be "Germany's interpretation of a barley-wine", ie a third definition next to England's "malt-driven" idea {such as JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale} and America's "hop-heavy" version {such as Sierra Nevada's BigFoot}. OG - 1085; IBU - 75; Ingredients; Hops:Spalt Spalter, Hallertauer Perle, Spalt Hallertauer; Malts: Pilsner malt, caramel malt, roasted malt

Okay, so rarely can I claim that a beer in the 89th percentile is underrated, but this certainly is. To me, this beer is one of, if not the best beers I’ve ever had. Not too rich, just full of caramel and greatness. Next time I find it I’m going to buy it all, just like the guy in front of me was doing, until I begged two bottles off of him. He was a smart man.

Enjoyed a sample of this beer at Tasting in the Woods, Part Deux. Altbier is one of my all time favorite beer styles, and Uerige has set the bar very high when it comes to alt, and its bigger, brawnier, brother, sticke. Leave to Uerige to go even higher with the first ever "doppel sticke" which is an even bigger version of sticke. This beer pours to a beautiful, bright, deep copper color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic, with lots of big, pungent, spicy/herbal hop aromas, and some toasty nutty malt aroma. The palate is slick on the tongue, with really great, toasty/nutty malt, paired with some nice fruity notes, on a smooth, and clean body. Doppel Sticke finishes with those great malt flavors up front, then ends with a zesty herbal burst of hop bitterness that lingers. A super charged up version of altbier, I loved this one. Like with altbier, and regular sticke, Uerige has brewed up another bench mark example of a beer style. World class beer.

I will be goddamned. Pours very dark beautiful ruby with a thick khaki dome that settles slowly and leaves some waves of foamy lace. Nose involves deep malty sweetness, brown sugar, dark fruit, vinous beauty, some light earthy and spicy hops, caramelized sugar, port wine, toasted malt, alky vapes. Excellently sweet, bitter enough to offer an attempt at balance. Full bodied, quite oily, viscous, rich, softer carb, with a drying toasty voluptuous finish. A bit oxidized? Maybe. A bit chunky? Sure. Best beer I’ve ever fucking had? You bet your honky ass.

It had just the right amount of malt flavor and aroma. It has more alcohol than I normally like for a "nooner", but hey, it was a Friday. It was difficult to fight the urge for another one.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Fantastica birra, una piacevole casuale scoperta in un pub. L’aroma è caldo e avvolgente, con chiare note affumicate, maltate e di frutta secca, e in bocca presenta proprio queste caratteristiche, ben abbinate tra loro. Un bel retrogusto amarognolo che invita ad una nuova bevuta. Corpo decisamente strutturato. Una delle migliori birre che ho mai assaggiato.

clear dark brown under a large creamy beige head. big potent raisin, plum, cocoa, dog food, nutty, toffee aroma. flavor is loaded with sweet sticky fruits(fresh squeezed purple grapes, plum, raisins, berries) tons of dark malts(chocolate, caramel). amazing balance with some mild bittering hops in finish but this beer is clearly malt mania. quite perfect actually. full bodied. a real meal.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2013
Dunkelbraun, fast schwarz, leicht trüb, kleine Schaumcrema. Wunderbare Aromenvielfalt: Portweinartig fruchtig und schwer, eingelegte Rosinen, Pflaume, Hefe, Tabak, Sandelholz. Sirupartige Textur. Startet fulminant herb, geht dann über in eine Würze nach Röst- und Karamellmalz mit Zartbitter. Hohe Aromendichte, sehr komplexer Nektar, der noch ein paar Ecken und Kanten aufweist, die bei längerer Lagerung wohl runder werden dürften. Ein Juwel deutscher Braukunst, ganz großes Kino.

First sampled in Philly, I had hoped to drink this in its native environment at the Uerige keller in Düsseldorf. Maybe on my next trip. Just as glorious as expected, dark and caramelly, slightly sweet with a hint at the alcohol.. This one is a treat all the way around. "old beer" my ass, this is just as relevant today. Try one if you have the chance, this is what altbier is all about.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2008
A cold pour produces a slow rising frothy head that reaches its peak at three fingers then sits there like a stubborn muledeer. Lacing is lasting, sticky, and fluffy. Aromas of sweet malted butter and darkfruit. A dark nut brown color emerges. Full nectar with good carbonation that thickens up like heavy cream on the palate. Sweet upfront turning bitter on a dime. Flavors of plumb, nectarine, maple, strict peachpit bittering. Finishes dry with lingering flavors.

EvilBuddha (69) - SLOVENIA - NOV 8, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2011 Bottled on 6. October 2010, into baby Chimay (180ml) chalice. Pours murky, deep coppery to bronze body topped by light tan, frothy head that slowly recedes. The deep nature of color probably results from usage of additional chocolate and/or black malts. The nose is loaded with rich malty sweetness with toasty notes, tons of fruity esters of plum, prune, raisins and figs, slightly spicy from usage of noble hops with citrus rind notes, brandy like alcohol. The assertive hoppy bitterness is counterbalanced by rich malty flavor with toasty notes; dark fruits are lesser than in the aroma; peppery noble hops flavor with strong citrus rind notes and intense bitter finish that lingers for ages. The brewer claims caramel malts containing complex sugars have been used in this one and that’s reflected in rich malt flavor and fullness of the body with less attenuation. Creamy and velvety smooth, verging on being syrupy with soft carbonation. The lagering of this basically an ale has nicely smoothened the beer without taking away any of its complexity. In short: a complex, fruity, bitter yet malty lagered ale.
